McNeilands (or Long)

Not much is know about this branch of the family.  We dont even know for sure what the surname is.  Jane Long or McNeilands was born circa 1795, County Tyrone, Ireland.  She marreid Andrew Buchanan (bc 1787, County Tyrone, Ireland).  For information on Jane and Andrews descendants, see my Buchanan page.

Jane and Andrew left Ireland during the famine years.  They set sail for Canada in 1847 and were forced to turn back due to weather.  They left again in 1848.  The journey was difficult and Andrew and one of their grandchildren perished due to fever that broke out on the ship.
